Bronze leaping cat, Zhou Dynasty, China 400 bc painting

Hi all, I’m sharing some of my painted sketches from a few months ago starting with this one of a bronze leaping cat, I saw it at the British Museum and adored the design, style, aesthetic, the form and colour. It is simply adorable so I decided to sketch it too..
I love this cat..

New Painting – Life Book 2017

Hello everyone, it feels like ages since I’ve posted a painting here, so I have a lot of catching up to do and will be sharing some of my sketches and art journal work over the coming weeks.

I managed to make a new Life Book 2017 painting!! yay.. I am soo behind with these.
I tried a new technique with this painting, our teacher asked us to use water soluble crayons (I love these!!), charcoal and white paint to create a rather soulful image.

I took it a bit further by adding india ink that I tinted with the watercolour crayons, it was amazing… tinted india ink is such a beautiful media to work with and I found I could create more depth and contrast that I usually add to my paintings.

I will experiment with it some more..

soulful you painting joanne seale
